Join us this Thursday, June 24th, for our summer reading event. It promises to be an exciting night with performances by 2009 Rosenthal Emerging Voices Fellow, Erika Ayón, nonfiction/fiction writer and sexual outlaw, Antonia Crane, who snagged Splinter an interview with the amazing Steve Almond, fiction editor, Alan Stewart Carl, and L.A. performer and poet, Douglas Kearney, whose latest book, The Black Automaton (Fence, 2009), was the topic of our recent poetry discussion. We will also be treated to acoustic sets by musical guests David Gielan and L.A. band, Oliver Future.

Special thanks to Mr. Popper for the awesome flyer design. x

Shooting Ladybugs

Apá’s voice pierces through the front door, as we play outside
on the porch taking turns letting a ladybug crawl inside our palms.
Apá is in the kitchen with Amá, screaming about how Mr. Craig,
whose house he painted the exterior of, refuses to pay.
